StackSafe, Inc., a provider of staging and testing solutions for IT operations teams, announced today that Hearst Corporation has chosen StackSafe™ Test Center to facilitate the migration of its e-mail system to Microsoft Exchange 2007 to reduce project delivery schedules and improve stability.

"We are excited to put Test Center to work for a respected media company like Hearst Corporation," said Loren Burnett, President and CEO of StackSafe. "Implementing Test Center will provide Hearst with a cost-effective and easy solution for pre-production testing of changes and upgrades within its Microsoft Exchange environment."

With Test Center, users easily and efficiently conduct testing without disrupting live environments in order to improve availability and system stability. The groundbreaking product was awarded the 2008 ITIL Innovation of the Year award at the International IT Service Management Conference and Exhibition.

"Hearst places a high value on continuous access to information," said Jim LoTruglio, Vice President of IT for Hearst Service Center. "Test Center improves our insight into how changes to our Microsoft Exchange environment will impact the availability of our business critical communications."

StackSafe Test Center squarely meets the pre-production testing needs of enterprises, regardless of their production environment.
